|[dlnet010] - Henry Flower - Non Resurgam - Henry Flower|
Henry Flower, also known as Henry Clarke creates his pieces by improvising guitar lines through various effects boxes, then processing them with sine waves and found sounds. The results are very moving. Mixed just right, duelling, plucked guitars battle it out to be heard in between shifting frequencies of hypnotic bass pulses. Very calming material. Watch for much more from this new artist.

|[dlnet007] - Drone Dimension - You Turn Me EP - Drone Dimension|
From their album, Faintly Acquainted Drone Dimension have the ability to transport you to Dreamland (yes, the place where we put together all these mp3 releases) Just kidding! But their blend of blissed out droning guitars, whispered vocals and percussive blasts are right up there with the best of the shoegazers. Unfortunately the band called it quits not long after this ep was released.

|[dlnet021] - Rafael Flores - Saint Lazaro Street Tapes Volumen 1 - Rafael Flores|
This is one of the most unique artists weve come across in a while due to the fact it is impossible to classify his sound. Rafael Floress sounds do not run smoothly. Utilizing field recordings, old jazz records & god knows what else? They are broken, twisted & mysterious. What do you think?

|[dlnet029] - The Unnameable - Graves Are Not Harde To Digg, Nor Acids Loth To Burne - The Unnameable|
The Unnameable create sounds inspired by the works of HP Lovecraft. This is their most recent work to follow up their debut album "Of That I Will Not Speak". 3 pieces of eerie and spacious drones that (in our opinion) recall 70s horror. Includes deeply disturbing liner notes the likes of which mankind has never seen.

A new comer to the Dreamland camp, Alexis hails from Argentina (which seems to be a growing haven for interesting sound sculptors i.e. Pablo Reche). Serving up four tracks of an almost clinical precision. Sounds consist of tiny microscopic beats atop broken sound scapes of static & scratches, static insect chirping, hum, electronically fried rain samples and who knows what else?

|[dlnet014] - mitre - Wallpaper - mitre|
Drone master mitre aka Scott Richardson returns with another release. Following on from his debut Entrance & previous Dreamland mini cd Sympathy For Agamemnon he continues his exploration of drones, using only the guitar as his source. Wallpaper covers a lot of territory, shifting between dense, warm walls of drones or light finger picked simple melodies over sprawling reverberated atmospheres. Never the same listen twice...

The only word to describe Transient is... Smooth. Could it be a soundtrack to a futuristic noir thriller? Mystified have the tools to create an excellent cinematic dub inspired sound, but they set their own rules. Utilizing broken drones with touches of heavy static and processed vocal signals. Transient possesses a very rhythmic sound, yet is propelled only by the pulses of bass throughout.
